It's always a joy to return to the Eno River and walk its many trails and listen to the gurgle of water as it makes its way to the sea. But we won't get there for another two weeks when I lead a trip to that historic park. This view was painted from a photograph I took earlier this year and I adjusted the colors to reflect those of the changing colors I see today. Our yellows are still a bit muted, but more of the reds are showing, and the brilliant oranges of our sugar maples have a few more weeks before they show themselves!


Yesterday was a less frantic day as part of the time, we were the ones listening to lectures, and the afternoon was spent giving them ... a nice balance ...


Despite the rainy week we've had, we'll attempt to put some fall flower color in our sign garden as we prepare for the orchard planting celebration early next month.


The warmth has returned, and already we're in the 70s! But the cool will be back this weekend, and with it, the feeling and coloration of fall.


Have a great one!

Okay, bad title time again right?


Still running way behind, but want to show some of the fall color shots before winter arrives


oh, check it out... :

If you like to be near water like I do then Montana could be a place you could fall in love with. Here you will find an abundance of lakes, rivers and waterfalls. And if you listen carefully you might even be able to connect and communicate with this force of nature. Last weekend I went on a hike and found myself mesmerized by nature’s secrets. It speaks the language of true beauty.


I asked:



Show me

How do you fall

Giving your all


She said:

You must give your all

Be clear

Trust and have no fear


I said:

You always move

You never look back

Do you have any regrets


She said:

No, no regrets

I keep living

I keep feeling

And I only fall

For love.



Don’t be surprised when you find yourself dancing with a waterfall.

… and falling deeply in love.

Last Fall I had a chance to visit the Bald River Falls, one of my favorite places. It was raining, and had been, but it was still good to get out and get a few shots in. Usually I dislike water droplets on the lens, but this time it seemed to help capture the mood of day.

- - another Niagara image. Every time I look at one of these I can feel being so close to the power and inconceivable energy of these falls. Here we are at the drop-off of the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side.

There is a different path to the drop-off on this side. The river is like a big flat plain, a vast expanse before reaching the edge. From a long view it looks less active although upon a closer look one can see plenty of activity leading to the is just more widespread. On the American side, the river narrows and the whitewater becomes very turbulent, going every which way, teaming and lapping and splashing upon itself right up to the brink of the falls.

I love how here one can see the water colored by the dark bed of the river as one element . Although without a lot of white caps, there is plenty of evidence of the significant movement and speed of the river flow.

Then there is the temporary suspension in air of the water dropping off, now a pure aqua color since it is only colored by itself at this point.

Below that the 'white wall' of unbelievable power, the sound if which always comes back to me when I see the pictures. So amazing. I can't do it justice.

Check out the map...using the hybrid view so you can see the river and falls from both sides.

The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River, gushing with spring snowmelt. Cascading from the 590,000 year old Canyon Rhyolite lava flow, Lower Yellowstone Falls is the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains of the United States. These falls are 308 feet (94 m) high, or nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls. The volume of water flowing over Lower Yellowstone Falls can vary from 680 cu ft/s (19 m3/s) in the autumn, to 8,400 cu ft/s (240 m3/s) at peak runoff in late springtime.


Thanks very much for stopping by, and for your continued kind comments and favorites. They are greatly appreciated.

While the water flow was relatively low, it was still an incredible experience visiting Elowah Falls just as the leaves were starting to turn colors.

Nice fall scene by Mercer, Wisconsin.

Guide Falls, just south of Burnie, northern Tasmania.

Very little water flowing, but you do get to get a better view of the amazing rock formation behind the flow.

taken across the bridge in my last image...i got under a tree next to the water and shot the tree branch and its reflection... then flipped the image...freakylicous!

The falls lie about 104 miles west of Spokane and this time of year are a sight to see but are worth the trip any time of year as the Palouse River runs year round and the fall is around 185 ft. A fella went over the falls in a kayak a few years back and the only casualty was a broken paddle. If you go,it is a State run park so be prepared for the $10.00 fee. I wasn't, had only a $20 so it cost me double. I was there only 1 1/2 hours so kinda spendy. Most of the landscape around this area was created when Lake Missoula which was created by a glacial dam in Montana during the ice age and said ice dam failed and a torrential flood came rushing through. The water here was easily 300 feet deep and running at a rapid rate. This happened many times and it sculpted an amazing landscape. Go see it if you can.

A small hike from the Bonneville Dam is Wachella Falls. Like so many other places in the Columbia River Gorge (a National Scenic Area) the trail to the Wachella Falls is inspiring. You cross a bridge that goes right over a respectable falls on the way to Wachella. I think that poor waterfall never gets any respect. I was sad for the poor fella. I think he may have been taller than Wachella but the scene was not quite what his big brother is, and it falls down rocks instead of off of rocks, so its just not as captivating. Sorry lesser falls. :( Once past that the canyon gets more and more impressive. The trees get bigger, the creek gets bigger and you start to climb in elevation, passing over bridge after bridge. Then the trail turns and heads back down in elevation and starts back down towards the river. Its like it was designed to take you up to see the tops of the trees and then drops you back down in just to intensify the experience. Over a few more bridges to make it even more fun, then you hear the falls, you can't see them yet, but you hear them. But nature is not done controlling your experience yet. With the sound of the falls beckoning yo, the trail goes into this cave-like depression in the rock face, with water falling down the inside of the cave and ferns growing form the ceiling of the cave. Forget about Wacella, you could turn back now and you would have had a great time. The over one last bridge and BAM! There's Wachella and a series of fantastic moss covered boulders. Like Spirit falls, no normal image would do here. Anything but a panorama would not do this area justice. I could almost hear the spirit of the falls saying, bit*h, you better not take a normal image of me. Ok, ok pushy spirit, no need to swear. Panorama it is. She smiled. She is rude, but she smiled. All were happy and a good time was had by all.

My heartfelt thanks to Nancy Rose whose magnificent images of fall inspired this painting. Please see Nancy's exquisite photos ( Thank you so much, Nancy!


Our colors are still mighty bright - and though our evening temperatures are in the 30s and 40sF - our days are incredible warm and can range from 50s to mid 70s! While it's wonderful to walk in warm temperatures, it sure makes clothes layering a major necessity! LOL


Orchard preparations continue, and now we wait for our trees to arrive. Today we work on tidying up the rest of the gardens, organize the day, and work on the kitchen garden.


The cisterns we've also won are due to arrive any day. We will be collecting over 5,000 gallons of water from our greenhouse roofs ... and this water will go right to the orchard.


Should be another wonderful sunny day before rain returns tomorrow ... Hope your day is great!

My oldest son and I visited my mother, father, various cousins, aunts and uncles over the Thanksgiving Holiday in the Portland area. Within the confines of the 24 hours that constitute Turkey Day, over 1" of rain fell, so naturally, it seemed like the next day would be a fine opportunity for a hike (and it was still raining that day, as well). As is abundantly clear here, the steady, persistent storm quickly saturated the already wet soils, and the creeks were all systems go, flushing hundreds of thousands of collective cubic feet per second back to the Pacific, and making millions of ferns and hectare upon hectare of moss achingly happy in the process.


With this much water passing through it, Elowah Falls created so much spray that I had to shoot and compose very quickly. Here, I was also balanced on two rocks intruding partially into the stream, trying to keep my balance. I've since learned from others here on Flickr that the trick is to use waders in order to get the camera right out in the flow of the creek, and not have to preoccupy oneself with the whole balancing schtick quite so much. I have a pair of fly-fishing waders that will do nicely, and I'm interested to try them out in this context sometime in the near future.

Falling Spring Falls is a breathtaking 80' waterfall that is one of the most visited and photographed spots in the Alleghany Highlands. The scenic waterfall is located on Route 220 in Alleghany County, just five miles north of Covington, Virginia. The property has had extensive renovations to the overlook and grounds, including a picnic area, so that visitors can more safely stop and enjoy the view.


Thomas Jefferson described the Falling Spring Falls as a "remarkable cascade...falling over a rock about 200 feet to the valley below." One of the largest falls in Virginia, it cascades from an overhanging ledge, and is easily visible from the roadway.




The stream rises in Warm River Cave, located on private property about a mile away. The water at its source, a mixture of warm thermal spring water and cold ground water, is approximately 85 degrees Farenheit year round and is rich in carbonate. As the stream flows out of the cave, it releases carbon dioxide, causing the water to become superaturated with carbonate. When the stream spills over the ledge at Falling Spring Falls, even more carbon dioxide is released, and the carbonate precipitates and is deposited as a type of limestone called travertine. The beautiful, fragile terraces of travertine below the falls are visible from the overlook.


The lush greenery at the bottom of the falls is called a spray cliff community, a microhabitat that is hydrated by the spray generated by the waterfall. Spray cliff communities only occur on rock surfaces that are constantly wet. Few waterfalls in Virginia are both large and constantly flowing enough to sustain spray cliff communities, making the spray cliff community here a rare example of this delicate microhabitat. At least 14 different of bryophyte (moss) species thrive in the cliff walls behind and around the falls, and there may be up to 268 species at the falls.


Beginning in 1914, mining companies acquired the land and began mining the travertine. Although the waterfall was much higher in its original location, mining operations diverted the flow to its present location, where the falls drop approximately 80 feet. The mining companies also used the falls to generate hydroelectric power in order to run a plant to process the travertine and an electric railway to haul it away.


In 2004, the falls and the 19 acres of land around it were donated to the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. Today the falls are administered by Douthat State Park.

This morning at Kings River Falls. It would have been nice to have remembered my tripod but I don't think I would have gotten as good a shot as this with the cool green moss in front if I had the camera mounted on the tripod.


Other than very minor fixes this is straight from the camera.


By the way.............the water is really that color.

My TOP 50


Water only flows through here when the river is high. This is on the Nepisiguit River right beside the Pabineau Falls

The Falls of the Big Sioux River have been a focus of life in the region throughout history. Native American peoples were the first to visit the falls and bring stories of them to European explorers. They have been the center of recreation and industry since the founding of the city in 1856. An average of 7,400 gallons of water drop 100 feet over the course of the Falls each second.

The Waterfalls at Hilton Falls Conservation area are amazing and fun to photograph in the best of weather conditions. yesterday was the first time I have been to the falls in the winter; mostly due to the three mile long trek in cold conditions and the slippery ice covered trail, which is better suited for snowshoes and cross country skis than my blundstones... (note to myself get some crampons or anti slip footwear next time) I only took one spill... landing hard on my posterior, other than my pride no real damage.


Even though the trip was slow and slippery it was well worth the hike. I got some great shots...I will post more later this week.


This is a shot of the river as the water winds its way down the stream away from the falls. I slowed the exposure down to give the water more movement and to isolate the ebb and flow of the current as it dances over and around the ice covered rocks in the shallow water..

This is nearly Natural....that is a dam wall. The Mettowee River. is natural... those are natural rock formations. The back is a small dam built many years ago to control water flow during spring run-off.


Someone placed a "Crop" note that I deleted. Those can sometimes be helpful but in this case it was annoying....I shot this from a bridge and although it's against the almighty "Rule of Thirds" in my eye it is best...cropped blocking out it's true appearance would take away from the beautiful rocks on both sides.
